All available DTC Symposium proceedings documents are posted on this web site in the form of text-searchable PDFs, including both abstracts and full papers.

Because of the various platforms and the many versions of web browsers currently in use, there is no single method for using the text-searchable PDF feature to recommend. The precise method for searching these documents will depend on the specific hardware and software configuration on each computer or device.
